Title

Letter to a Brother of the Rees Family about Politics

Description

Letter addressed to a brother of the Rees family, but neither the author of the letter nor who the letter is to be mentioned. The letter talks about local gossip in Butteville. Then the letter cuts off and switches from March to December and talks about the Presidential candidates for 1876. It was a close race between Samuel J. Tilden and Rutherford B. Hayes, with Hayes winning the election. The author of this letter strong supports the Federalist views while talking about politics during this time. This is one item from the Rees Family Correspondence Collection, which includes many letters between family members in Oregon and Ohio.
